#1: Strange Managerial Appointment Author: bridgesboy79 PostPosted: Thu Jun 19, 2014 1:17 pm

Apparently not good enough for Forest Green last season but is for Leeds! I am not convinced by this Director of Football approach that a number of clubs have. It is not the traditional English way of being successful. It works in some countries but not over here.

I like his wikipedia pose

Looks like he's advertsing an episode of Bouncers

Cellino's a lunatic, and if Hockaday lasts a month I will be amazed.

So who wouldn't do a months work then pick up payoff for 2 year contract when he gets the inevitable bullet?

Leeds United are the new QPR.... the game always needs a bit of pantomime.

By coincidence... exactly the same amount of days that another European cup winning manager was in charge of Leeds.. Jock Stein..!

I must admit to being in two minds about this appointment.

One, a non-league manager gets a step up to a major club. Recognition of a person who has done well at a lower level and promoting them.

Two, how can a failure at one level get a job at a higher level? Think about it. I'm no good as your workmate but get promoted to your boss!

Where do I find Thad's head scratching emotion?

I thought I read somewhere he had a decent record as a coach (as opposed to manager).

It seems a strange appointment but you never know.

It used to be called the 'Civil Service'.....

To get rid of someone useless you promoted them, usually to another department!

Shocked
